Malawian preacher thinks he’s God: Overtone Makuta compared to cult leader

Overtone Makuta says is no ordinary preacher like the ‘men of God’ who claim to have a speed dial to  God and  claim to have healing powers and the ability to convey messages directly from God , saying he is the Almighty himself and his followers  are praying to him and calling him their creator.

Overtone Makuta: I am God the creator up to the people to accept it or not.

Makuta has been holding his miracle evangelism throughut Malawi and is also gaining ground in Tanzania and Mozambique.

As most Chritian preachers are proclaiming salvation in the afterlife, ‘Creator’ Makuta evangelism is not different from so called ‘prophets’ ‘pastors’, ‘apostles’ sometimes even ‘prophetesses’ about instant babies, instant wealth, and instant husbands and wives.

A video clip which is circulation on social media like fire in the dry bush shows Makuta followers laying out clothes on the road for him to walk on.

Another video shows a member of Makuta’s churches praying to him and referring to the man as ‘God’ and creator.

“You also came initially as a Jewish and people mocked you. You have come again and people are still doubting saying you are a human being. Repeating the same mistake made by others in the past,”  a church elder says in the video clip

He adds that following ‘God’ Makuta’s coming the destruction of the earth is near and the people who are following him are blessed.

But religious leaders and Chrzistians compare Makuta to a cult leader.

Makuta is not new to the ‘God’ claims in Malawi as in 2018 a  self-styled Jesus Christ the ‘son of God’,  Saidi Pius from Maso Village in Traditional Authority Chowe in  Mangochi District emerged and was rescused by police after the public wanted to attack him for “blasphemous”.

After police questioned him, they suspected he was mentally unstable, a condition his brother, Witness Pius, confirmed when he was later summoned to the police.

In 2006, one Raphael Matiki made headlines with similar claims in Blantyre’s Chilomoni Township which angered the residents. They evicted him from the township.

‘Jesus’ Matiki as he was popularly known, fled to Machinjiri with his four wives and ‘disciples’ where he was also descended upon for the same claims by angry residents.

He was also rescued by police who took him to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital for medical examination but he discharged himself saying, as Jesus, he needed no mortal treatment.

Matiki had disciples with the names of their biblical predecessors like ‘Simon Peter’.

Unlike the original Jesus of Nazareth, some of his disciples were  women and he claimed this time around salvation will come through a woman.

Followers of modern preachers  are easily impressed by the flashy cars, jets and tramped up security. The list of such ‘men of God’ is growing every day.

They pounce on the emotionally frail, financially challenged or physically sick; desperate people searching for some sort of miracle answer to their suffering.

Ironically, when someone stands up to them, their response is always the same; “It’s the devil’s work.”

In the context above, the editor says that there was so called Jesus Matiki and whatever. We saw them and we heard their character and their regards, But now if you are wise enough come to where LORD OVERTONE CHRIST found and here on your own then discern if it is of God because He does not in the name of Jesus. We Africans being black/brown in colour there must be also our Father to be black/brown in colour as well. God created us to look as we are, now here we are, ” can God be White in colour… Read more »

Though the article seems misleading, portraying the writer’s perception over the matter and not whats really on the ground and I wonder if he went across The Lord Overtone Himself for an interview, still those who are caught to attention, should not judge based on this article, rather come and be in one of the meetings, SALI KUTALI NDI PA BT POMPA to prove for yourself. BUT FOR ME. HE IS GOD IN THIS HOUR

In my opinion all negative comments are emanating from people that are fond of hiding their identities in whose selfish motives, they would like to discredit the truth under pretext of false quotations, they do not even understand . Spiritual things are discerned spiritually. God is so simple that, only the simple can easily believe them. All religious people have in the past missed God in flesh and since spirits do not die hence the repeat. It could be better if we learnt a lesson from being haunted by the past mistakes perpetrated by our friends, the Jews. We should… Read more »

You are wrong from the first place. My Lord Overtone Christ publicly unveils Himself to be The Creator in Body of Overtone, He is not a prophet as some claims, so your comparison is invalid

The headline is misleading. He doesn’t think he is god but he is saying that he is god to his worshippers.

Ladies and Gentlemen, God is always simple such that people are good at mocking Him because of His simplicity. It happened to the Jews when Jesus appeared to them and they ridiculed Him finally they realized that He was their source of help. It all started with an experience at the river Jordan which saw Jesus becoming God among the Jews and the Jews started speaking bad of Him after the Demons entered in them. The battle is always among spirits and for the spirits to fight one another they always find bodies. The Jewish people in whom the spirit… Read more »

It happened with the Jews that the Messiah they were waiting for came in the seemingly different way beating their wisdom to the extent of accusing Him of being devil. I would wonder if all Malawians could be in agreement with the LORD OVERTONE CHRIST. People have their own version of GOD. Be it known to you that LORD OVERTONE is the promised Redeemer who is bringing us back to EDEN where we ought to have authority over all things. If you don’t know just come and see. You will be the best judge because it will be premature to… Read more »

If you note there is now 3 dudes that have claimed they are Messiahs… Your Overton guy is number 4..and that is only in Malawi!!!!!! How many Messiahs should we be talking about kodi??? Help my unbelief but…. all things equal.. Africa has 52 nations and let each nation produce each Messiah…..how many are these supposed to be….. AND PLEASE STOP GETTING ANGRY AND EMOTIONAL ON BEHALF OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD….. Let HIS anger be HIS anger…. And keep your anger, emotions and sentiments to yourself..
